I use both Nero and Movavi Video Suite, which does audio as well.

Nero works quite well. you could also use Windows Media Player if you're on a PC.

Thanks guys! I'm using WMP with my new Dell Studio but the file doesn't seem to convert to a CDA file it comes over as a WAV file! Is there (by chance :oops: ) something that I'm doing wrong or need to do?

.WAV files are perfect.

Are you creating an audio CD or a data CD that contains the .WAV files? A data CD will not work.

How old is your stereo's CD player?

When you burn the CD, are you doing a multi-session burn or are you closing the CD session?

A multi-session burn may not read correctly with some players.
